Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study is to explore the therapist’s perspective regarding the clients and family who receive in-home therapy, their perspectives on the therapists practicing in the field, and the industry as a whole. A qualitative phenomenological study was conducted in order to explore the emergent themes from transcribed audiotaped interviews of 12 participants. The participants were all licensed therapists working with child and adolescents and their families within the home. The participants were recruited through a purposive snowball sample.

Seven major themes emerged from the study, these themes were as follows: (a) home and environment; (b) clients and their families; (c) treatment; (d) time; (e) the therapists; (f) experience; and (g) competency. Additional findings were presented, the developmentally disabled, burnout, and the work of psychologist in the in-home therapy field. This study also presented conclusions, recommendations for future research and a summary of the work as a whole.
